ABOUT EVE RUTH
Over the past 13 years, I have worked with thousands of job hunters, entrepreneurs, and consultants at the CEO, CIO, CTO, COO, CMO, VP, director, manager, and entry levels. More than 85% of my clients find me through direct referrals from recruiters, management consultants, and former clients.
A Certified Master Resume Writer (CMRW) with an MFA in writing and background in recruiting, I've been consistently recognized for professionalism, confidentiality, and creating resumes and LinkedIn profiles that deliver job-winning results.
a few more details
It wasn't my intention to become a professional resume writer.
While I was attending graduate school, I landed a part-time job with a recruiter, and one of my responsibilities was to rewrite job candidates’ resumes to make them more attractive to employers.
In the beginning, overhauling resumes was a simply an exercise in wordsmithing (I was in graduate school for writing, after all). But my excitement peaked when I saw results of my efforts: The better the resumes, the more interviews we scheduled. The more interviews we scheduled, the more jobs we placed.
Since job placements are bread-and-butter to a recruiter, my work was good for business—and great for job seekers.
After I finished graduate school and moved on from the recruiting firm (the owner soon retired and closed the successful business), I continued to write resumes for job hunters and other local recruiters. Within six months, I was working to capacity. That was 13 years ago. I have been working as a full-time professional resume writer ever since.
I have immersed myself in this business by staying on top of the latest trends in resume writing, LinkedIn profile development, and personal branding. Year after year, the job market changes, new trends and technologies emerge, and the needs of my clients continue to evolve.
To me, there is something remarkable—and satisfying—about creating documents that help job seekers and entrepreneurs advance their careers, increase their incomes, and change their lives for the better.
Please contact me to discuss your specific project. I hope to hear from you soon.
